We discovered Gilsland by happy accident. It's lovely! Little bit of woods, little bit of meadow, little bit of marsh and water views. Perfect to burn some kid energy and view birds, wildflowers, and bugs.

Beautiful land with water views here and there through the trail. Well maintained. Easy. Great for families with small kids. We didn't go in, but there was a science center of sorts to explore. It was our back up plan after Mackworth island parking was full. Will definitely be back!!! I'll bring binoculars next time. Great place to bird watch.

For anyone who loves bird watching, this is a great location. The trail even includes an osprey stand! Easy to follow with several places to just sit and observe.

Very easy rolling trails open year round. There are three main trail loops that end up consisting of a little over two miles. There are covered shelters with benches for bird watching (one of the fields has a tower built for an osprey nest).
